In a human, assuming no mutations, is it possible to have a child with this phenotype, given the phenotype of the parents?
The mother, Alice, has black hair and brown eyes. The father, Bob, has red hair and green eyes. The child, Clare, has green eyes and black hair.
From what I know of genetics, and experimentation using a simplified model, called the 'Genetic Heredity Calculator', this should not be possible.
Being green eyed is apparently a 10%. chance, however resulting in a black-haired child isn't supposed to be possible.
Of course, my understanding of genetics is far from complete. Is it possible, and if so, what is the likelihood that this is the result, knowing nothing else of the parents' genetics, aside from them being caucasian British?
My question revolves around Alice, who has hair well within the commonly perceived range of 'black', which I here define as <7 lightness in HSL, having a child with Bob, a redheaded man, which I shall define as a man whose hair colour in hex is greater than 3:2 r:g, and >30 Lightness in HSL.
Such precision is not required, but exists to put the question in context.
